A story about hopes, dreams and questionable research methods

In this two-man musical spoof, a pair of aspiring playwrights perform a backers’ audition for their new project - a big, splashy musical about printing press inventor Johann Gutenberg. With an unending supply of enthusiasm, Bud and Doug sing all the songs and play all the parts in their historical epic, with the hope that one of the producers in attendance will give them a Broadway contract – fulfilling their ill-advised dreams.

“From start to finish, the ridiculously goofy Gutenberg! has a random-orbit wobble that feels exactly like an improv sketch gone rogue. Anything might happen in this show about showbiz, and about two dreamers who’d like to quit their day jobs and get in the game…Gutenberg! The Musical! is a night of ditzy, dippy fun...and right now, that seems like just the ticket.” Theater Jones
